    Alcohol , as with most drugs, in small amounts will increase pleasure and allow for more social interaction (loss of inhibition). The trick is, know where the limits are, and in order to find the limits, you have to surpass them once in awhile, usually when you are just experimenting with it. I love a nice single malt scotch in the evening. I can sip it and enjoy the subtle flavours and smells, and have come to appreciate the work required to present such unique spirits to the discerning consumer.

    If you are talking about things like light beer, which is only there to make you drink more to get any taste or flavor at all, I have to quote John Oliver on the taste of one of America's favorite beers, Bud Light...........

    • “It tastes like the flat soda that a homeless guys uses to rinse off burns.”
    • “It’s like a liquid version of a John Mayer song.”
    • “Bud Light tastes like the urine of a scared rabbit.”
    • “It tastes like Robert Durst’s aquarium.”
    • “It’s like someone drank a good Mexican beer and peed in a Bud Light bottle.”
    • “It tastes as if a raccoon ejaculated carbonated vinegar into in old log.”

    There is good alcohol.........and bad alcohol, just like the people who consume it.

    Gin and tonics make me get naked. Is that surpassing the limit or just finding it?

    Drank a lot when I was younger, finally came to my senses in my late 20s when we started a family. Through my 30s and 40s I developed a sensitivity to alcohol similar to allergies and blamed it on the food I ate. As of two years ago the sensitivity has progressed to the point where one sip of any alcohol, and I immediately feel hives on my scalp. With 15 to 20 minutes my digestive tract does a complete purge.

    So I don't drink any alcohol.

    That might be the worst thing I’ve ever heard.

    Well said Bang. It amazes me that there is a product in my glass that was created 25 years ago, and laid by until now, with no profit for the maker until the moment of sale 25 years later.

    Careful, it also makes your wife’s ugly friends hotter.

    So far nobody has posted "because it is a legal intoxicant". If it were illegal I wonder how many here would quit drinking?
